The Metro Museum at Patel Chowk metro station showcases the genesis, history, and journey of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). The museum, a collection of display panels, historical photographs and exhibits, traces the genesis of the Delhi Metro - which took 32 years to reach an operational stage - from the drawing boards.
The museum has displays on the unique management style and work culture of the DMRC that has helped it in completing projects before time consistently. It has an extensive section on the construction of the metro and the problems encountered during the process, including the story behind the construction of technological marvels such as the Chawri Bazaar metro station (the second deepest Metro station in the world) and India's first extra-dosed bridge. A model of the tunnel boring machine (TBM), a "tooth" taken from a TBM, soil samples collected from around the city, and helmets of different colours used at construction sites form a part of the museum.
